Choreographer and director Kim Brandstrup's film Leda and the Swan,
commissioned by The Royal Ballet for Deloitte Ignite 2014. Performed by
dancers Zenaida Yanowsky and Tommy Franzen, and Yeats’s poetry read by
actor Fiona Shaw.

The
annual contemporary arts festival at the Royal Opera House. Deloitte
Ignite 2014 was curated by The Royal Ballet and The National Gallery’s
Minna Moore Ede, this year's festival is a feast of dance and visual
art.

The month-long festival celebrated and explored the origin
of myth and creation through dance, visual art, film, music and
movement. The festival focused on two archetypal myths: Prometheus, the
Titan who creates man from clay and steals fire from the Gods, and Leda
and the Swan, the mysterious conjunction of a mortal woman and the god
Zeus, disguised as a swan.
